At my last midwife appointment, Mary said she'd have me do the "glucose tolerance test" after the holidays. The thought of it just made me ill. Those orange glucose drinks are HORRID. Hate them.
So I had an appointment today. Have I mentioned I LOVE my midwives?? :-) Everything's looking good. Though I did gain TEN pounds over the holidays. I knew I'd packed on a few! So then they mentioned the dreaded glucose test. Except I wanted to dance a jig when Nedra said, "Which do you want... Milky Way, jelly beans, or the orange drink?" What?! Are you kidding me? I have a choice? I don't have to guzzle nastiness for my glucose test?! Woo hoo! So, the morning of my next appointment I get to eat 18 jelly beans between 9:00 and 9:15. That I can handle!
Hallelujah for evading the orange drink! This reason alone is enough to recommend midwives to every pregnant woman!
